Soup has been part of the Irish cooking tradition for generations. A great all-rounder, soup can be served hot and steaming on a cold winter's day or chilled and refreshing in a summer brunch; as a light starter to dinner party or a meal in itself.

This selection of mouth-watering and unusual soups from Ireland -- including Wild Garlic and Potato, Cream of Wild Salmon, Maire Rua soup made from fresh beetroot, Patriot Soup, Pea and Ham, Roast Plum and red cabbage -- are nutritious, delicious and easy to make. Serve with traditional, crunchy Irish brown bread, and wait for the compliments to pour in!

Interesting morsels of information on associated Irish folklore and tradition enhance the recipes.

Eileen O'Driscoll is a chartered physiotherapist and acupuncturist. She combines her busy Dublin practice with caring for her three children. A 'foodie' with a passion for good ingredients cooked with flair and ingenuity, this is her first book.

Three well-planned and pleasant little resources for the kitchen, all helpfully devoting one page to each recipe, with a background note, ingredients and method ... substantial collections of good recipes to which you will find yourself turning much more often than to the extravagant and showy cookbooks with their glistening colour photos and stylish spoofery.
